Imagine my surprise when I got my new 65inch Samsung Smart TV getting ready to blow a whole weekend watching anime only to find out crunchyroll isn't supported on the J-series (2015 models).

I contacted samsung and they told the app developers didn't support the new format. So I'm wondering... is there going to be a release for the app or should I just take my TV back to Best Buy? Does anyone happen to have any information?

You could keep the TV and use a Chromecast, Roku, or video game console to watch CR (and other video apps).

We don't currently support any SmartTV devices directly. In any constellation watching on a SmartTV will currently require an additional device, such as a gaming console, a set-top box such as Apple TV or Roku, or a Chromecast to cast from your PC or a mobile device. Sorry for the inconvenience.

You don't support any smart TV device? That's the same conversation I had with Samsung. But I guess you mean you stopped supporting SmartTV because this article from 2012 say's otherwise: http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-772242/crunchyroll-is-on-samsung-smart-tv-now

And Samsung has this on there website: http://www.samsung.com/levant/smarthub/smartHub/apps_crunchyroll.html

Oh well. I hope an app does come out soon. I was hoping to get rid of the google chromcast.

Realistically, if you just got it, you might return the Samsung and get one of the new Roku TVs by Haier, Hisense, TCL, Sharp, or Insignia instead. Since there is a Roku app, it shouldn't be any different for one of those TVs with the Roku OS... but I guess I would make sure that it does work first.

Although, it does appear that 55" is the biggest one available...
